CALL FOR PARTICIPATION 

(Early Bird Registration Deadline: 15th July 2016)

11th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management 
Karlstad, Sweden, 21-26 August 2016
http://www.ifip-summerschool.org/

Organised by IFIP Working Groups 9.2, 9.6/11.7, 11.6 in co-operation with
the Computer Science Department at Karlstad University and the EU H2020 ITN
Project Privacy & Us, the H2020 Project CREDENTIAL and the Forum Privatheit.


The IFIP Summer Schools take a holistic approach to society and technology
and support interdisciplinary exchange through keynote and plenary lectures,
tutorials, workshops, and research paper presentations. In particular,
participants’ contributions that combine technical, legal, regulatory,
socio-economic, social or societal, political, ethical, anthropological,
philosophical, or psychological perspectives are welcome. The
interdisciplinary character of the work is fundamental to the school.
The research paper presentations and the workshops have a particular focus
on involving students, and on encouraging the publication of high-quality,
thorough research papers by students/young researchers.

Background
----------
2016 will see a raft of advances in data protection regulation. Globally
there are questions raised about how to introduce and adopt data protection
and data privacy legislation appropriately. The European General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR) is likely to be adopted in spring 2016 and will
probably come into force two years later. The Regulation retains the
principles embedded in the current Data Protection Directive. It introduces
new measures and strengthens others. Accountability, Data Protection Impact
Assessment, Privacy by Design and by Default, the Right to be Forgotten, and
a much more potent sanction regime are a few of the new or reinforced
notions in the GDPR. These have the potential to improve privacy and data
protection, but also raise a number of challenges regarding scope,
feasibility, implementation and effects. These questions concern technical,
legal, social, economic, philosophical, psychological, and other dimensions.
Other forms of legislation may also change the regulatory scene dramatically
and have effects on privacy and identity. For instance, the 2015 Cyber
Security Directive and the “Privacy Shield”, that is replacing the Safe
Harbour Agreement, will also raise new questions.

Yet legislation is not the only driver. Technological advances such as the
use of open data, big data, and sensor development in the Internet of
Everything are rapidly changing who holds what data, and where and how that
data may be used. Business development is increasing in fields related to
surveillance, control of mass movement, security, safety, and identity
management. Cities, towns, communities, streets, house and modes of
transportation are all becoming smarter. Fields of organisational activity
are merging. There are also many advances on hand that may help to achieve
better and safer infrastructures for people to communicate freely without
being observed either by commercial or by governmental bodies (user
empowerment); improve the balance between individuals and institutions
(especially concerning the privacy protection goals of transparency and
participation); and set up democratic processes in which effective oversight
over the consequences of new technologies can be exercised.

These questions, as well as many other current and general research issues
surrounding privacy and identity management, will all be addressed by the
2016 IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management. The school
covers all aspects of privacy and identity and seeks for contributions from
a broad range of disciplines (e.g., computer science, informatics,
economics, ethics, law, psychology, sociology, political and other social
sciences, surveillance studies, business and public management). 

Credit Points
-------------

Students who actively participate, in particular those who present a paper,
can receive a course certificate which awards 3 ECTS points at the PhD
level. Student attendees who do not present a paper will receive a course
certificate, which awards 1.5 ECTS points at the PhD level. The certificate
can state the topic of the paper contribution so as to demonstrate its
relationship (or otherwise) to the student’s master’s or PhD thesis.
